[examples of wannabe precomposed characters snipped]
It's important to remember *why* precomposed characters like
LATIN CAPITAL LETTER A WITH ACUTE are included in Unicode,
whereas LATIN CAPITAL LETTER Q WITH CIRCUMFLEX is not: for
round-trip compatibility with existing character sets.
There is nothing "second-class" about using decomposed
character sequences; they are the "True Unicode Way".
Precomposed characters are the second-class citizens.
So unless you have evidence that these characters are
members of existing character sets someplace, then there
is little reason for them to be incorporated in Unicode.
